American jobs are good for the American economy.

For over 50 years Buck has been making the 110 Folding Hunter. And the best thing is it can still be found for under $40 and made in the U.S.A.

Buck also has a few other folding knives I really like which are all made here in the U.S. Take a look at the model 112 Ranger, 546 Open Season, 285 Bantum, 345 Vantage, and 722 Spitfire.

My 2nd favorite U.S. made folder is the Gerber Gator folding knife.

Yep as Revolver Guy states Buck and Case are made here. Am happy with my Buck Alpha folder for skinning and light chores. Own a Sog Trident too which does use Aus-8 steel which is a Jap steel but semi decent and sharpens easily. Nice to have some knives made here instead of outsourcing everything.

Made in China

I try to buy made in the USA and will not buy knives that are made in China. I do have a couple that are made in Taiwan, but they are not an enemy to the free world. China is also an environmental nightmare as well as a blatant thief of copyrighted designs.

Case knives are still made in USA, some of the Buck and Kershaws are made in USA. The ones made in usa cost more, some of the made in China knives seem ok, others are just cheap crap.

There are lots of great USA made knives available from makers like Kershaw, Buck, Case, Gerber, Zero Tolerance, Benchmade, Esee, etc....
BUT you won't find any of them for $19.99 at Walmart.

Support American jobs. BUY AMERICAN

I bought a great lockback Kershaw lookalike online about 20 years ago and have been carrying it ever since. I seem to use it daily.
WouId rather buy US made, but this China doll is a real workhorse.

Benchmade!

Mcusta is a great Japanese-made knife, BTW. Check out their Damascus steel versions.

I won't own a Chinese knife. I won't own anything made in China if I can spend a little more and get something made anywhere else. The Chinese are putting the American worker out of work. The Communist bastards even made the SKS that shot my Dad in Viet Nam.
